Nike+ – Getting Started

Nike+ iPod BoxThis morning marked my first official walk with Nike+. I have added a new page to the site utilizing widgets from showing my goals and last 5 runs/walks. Initially, I’ve set the following goals for myself:

  • Walk 100 miles in 16 weeks.
  • Walk at least 50 times in the next 16 weeks.
  • Burn at least 5000 calories in the next 4 weeks.

Since I set these goals up after my first walk, it won’t count towards them. Kind of a bummer, but not a huge deal. Also realized that I need to recalibrate my sensor. When I first set it up the other night, I only walked a half mile, so my pace was much faster overall. When I walked this morning, I ended up walking close to 2.5 miles, but the sensor only registered 1.95. Again, not a huge deal, but I am hoping to get the sensor better calibrated to me so future walks will be more accurately measured.
